Looks a very good lens on my f mount cameras to fill up the gap between 70-200 and 150-600

You lucky so and so. I travelled down to Falmouth in Cornwall for our last total eclipse here in the UK. It clouded over about 30 min before it started, and cleard again about 30 mins after it ended :(. Still I took my then 9 year old son and we went on my motorbike. It was a propper road trip, since it took a whole day to get there. That was back in 99.

Could you guys give some opinions about this lens compare with the canon 400mm f5.6?

I have the 400mm f4.6, mostly for birds (but actually because its MFD is too long for flowers and insects).
Sometimes I wish it has IS, zoom and closer focus distance... maybe I'm asking too much here.

If I buy the sigma, I can use it more without changing lens. The trade-off is image quality

So what do you think about image quality of the sigma and canon on a crop body (7D II)?

Thanks a lot.

It seems to perform well with crop body.
Maybe I give it a try ( I can sell the canon prime at the same price as a new sigma)

Ordered mine yesterday, comes in thursday! Picked it up with the dock for $799 on B&H. Why not? A third the cost of canon's V2 offering. V1 is to outdated to justify a grand.

This was taken at the Culpeper (Virginia, USA) Air Fest on October 14. I was about 500 feet away from the plane as it took off. I’ve inset a small crop of the 100% image to show the level of detail the Sigma 100-400 can capture (and it looked even better before I converted it to JPEG for posting). I love this lens!

Sigma in the USA has reduced the price on this lens by $100, to $699. The web site calls it an "instant savings". I don't know if this is a permanent reduction or just through the holidays.

Might have to do with the new Tamron 100-400 . I've heard it's very good also.

Just picked up a new 100-400 OS from Amazon with the rebate ($699 shipped, including the docking station) and I'm pretty damn happy with it so far. I hope to get it out for some action shots soon, but so far it's been $$$ in the back yard with my dog posing for me. I believe this one was shot around 400mm on my 6D, wide open. I also have an 80D that I'll test it out on as well.

In the reviews I read on the 100-400 OS before buying, a lot of them mentioned the lens having trouble focusing on objects coming straight at you; so I decided to test that out this afternoon with my 80D. The most difficult part of the "shoot" was being able to follow my 2-yr old lab as she chased the tennis ball. Overall, I'd say the focusing issues I read about are unfounded- I didn't realize a keeper rate any lower than with other lenses like the Canon 70-200 f/4L.

How is it when backlit?

No idea. I've only had the lens two days, and I shoot in very few back-lit conditions.
